Surgical management is increasingly preferred in human papilloma-related oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma. Robotic surgery has a different role to play in oropharyngeal salivary origin tumors, where surgery is the primary essential modality. This modality may be used for better access to the oropharynx, avoiding a lip split approach with mandibulotomy. The organ preservation approach such as in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma, with nonsurgical modalities like chemoradiotherapy, is not preferred in such cancers, as in the present case. In this context, robot-assisted surgery helps in reducing the morbidity by avoiding the mandibulotomy
